Brooks Koepka celebrates with caddy Ricky Elliott at the 2018 US Open
17 August, 2018, 21:40
President Donald Trump has hailed US PGA victor Brooks Koepka as a "man of steel" following his triumph at Bellerive Country Club.
Four others who previously clinched positions were top-ranked Dustin Johnson, reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed, third-ranked 2017 PGA victor Justin Thomas and second-ranked Brooks Koepka, this year's PGA Championship and US Open victor. Seconds later, another burst from patrons watching on TV in chalets. We heard the roar from the green, and then we heard the roar from every leaderboard that was going up around the course.
The roars were never louder than when he hooked a 9-iron off the muddied, trampled grass on No. 9 and made birdie, except maybe for his approach into the 15th that plopped down a foot from the cup, bringing him within one shot of the lead. He's got deft touch and a pure putting stroke, but is more about overpowering golf courses than overthinking them.
So, exactly who is Brooks Koepka? "I'm going to be there either way".
He followed that up with an electrifying second place finish at the PGA Championship, showing everyone that it's no longer a question of if he will win another major (or four), but when. He also said that when he was appointed a vice captain for the Presidents Cup for the 2017 matches, and no one took him all that seriously.
Thomas Bjorn might have seen it coming. That gave Koepka a two-shot cushion that allowed him to coast into the finish, much the way he did at Shinnecock earlier this summer, and at Erin Hills in last year's U.S. Open.
More storms possible this afternoon in Boulder Sunday will be the next big day to watch as severe weather and very heavy rain look to make their return into the afternoon. With the chance of rain of 60 to 70%, almost all of southeastern North Carolina will receive one or multiple rounds of rain.
Sure, Tiger wasn't able to make the shots down the stretch and missed a almost tournament-altering putt on the 14th hole.
The highest placed Irishman was Shane Lowry, whose even par round left him on -8 for the week in a tie for 13th.
That was as good as it got. Numerous top tour stars where right around the top of the leaderboard. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker.
The pair had to battle to do it. Woods carded a final round 64 to reach -14 for the week but even that wasn't enough to reel in the in-form Koepka, who made six birdies on his way to a four-under-par round to win by two from Woods and three from playing-partner Scott.
Having already committed to both The Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship, Woods' agent confirmed to GolfChannel.com that the 14-time major champ will also make an appearance next month at the BMW Championship.
"It's tough to beat when the guy hits it 340 down the middle", Woods said. He only started playing golf because he was in a vehicle crash and hurt his face - I think he fractured his sinus - he got his face banged-up in a auto crash and was told "You can't play contact sports for a while" so he just took up golf. He was able to hit a couple of good shots and holed a couple of good putts, and was able to come through in the end.
Up next for Kvitova is either No.15 seed Elise Mertens or US Open champion Sloane Stephens for a spot in the semifinals. The win was the first time Querrey has come out on top in a third set tiebreaker this year after losing seven in a row.
